Adolescents are known to search for their identity, to be especially influenced by peer groups, to struggle to establish a degree of independence from the family, and to strive to develop a sense of gender role. Adolescents from immigrant families may face special stresses and tensions, due to differences in gender roles, family structure and cohesiveness, and differences in emphasis between individual and group values between the family's original culture and the host culture. Too often, this can lead to alienation from both the positive elements of the host culture, and the family, with resultant problems such as psychological distress, delinquency, and substance abuse.
In this assignment, you will write a paper in which you look at evidence-based and model programs aimed to ameliorate the stress of acculturation for adolescents. In your paper, be sure to:
• Locate at least three programs (evidence based programs or model programs) aimed at ameliorating the negative impact of acculturation on adolescents. Each program should target a different ethnic group or nationality.
• Identity the particular characteristics of this group and how immigration and acculturation challenge the adolescents of this group.
• Describe how Berry or LaFrancoise’s acculturation model might be applied to the group described in the research.
• Explain the program and compare the mechanisms for healthy acculturation in the program to the ones mentioned in the text, such as language, education, and support groups.
• Identify unanswered questions and needs for further research.
Support your paper with at least three research articles published in peer reviewed journals. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Length: 5-7 pages
Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
